All parts are available new from Minispares.

I replace all but the brass bit as a matter of course.

Is that the brass one you need John ?

Also got some of the union bolts at the platers at the moment if you are in no hurry ?

Pretty sure I have the 90 degree one I can spare.

I'll look later and let you know.

Typically, I sent your switch off this morning .. too damned efficient . :shock: :oops:

The 'straight' one (one legged kicked up slightly) or the 90 degree one?
